    Where can I have fabric laser cut?

    I remember reading a post here several months ago and someone commented that she sent her fabric out to have it laser cut. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am considering a hexagon quilt and would love to have all those little hexies cut for me. I do not have an accuquilt so thought this might be an option. Anybody have a link to a place that does this?

    The easiest way to cut hexies is to cut your strips then fold the strips in half length ways, use a triangle type ruler (Kayes's Starmaker 6) and cut on each side. Kaye Wood's hexi quilt book http://www.kayewood.com/item/Easy_He...s_Book/235/c46 teaches this technique....

    I would only trust a quilter to do it. Check out John Flynn - flynnquilt.com. Im not sure is they cut pieces for anything other than their own designs.

    Doesn't Keepsake sell pre-cut hexagon collections? Just an idea.... I haven't heard much about laser-cut fabric, other than John Flynn. Sorry.
